Skinnier Fettuccine Alfredo

Here is a skinnier version of Fettuccine Alfredo,,,,usually when you make Alfredo sauce heavy whipping cream is used ,,,,which can be high in fat and calories,,,,,,,This sauce uses 2% milk,,,but you could also use skim milk if you wanted to and I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese,,,,I also used gluten free flour, but regular is fine too!...Here is what I did, Enjoy!!

8-10 oz Fettuccine
2 T butter
2 T Flour
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 1/4 Cups 2% Milk
2 oz cream cheese
1/4 Cup parmesan cheese
2 T chopped parsley
salt and pepper
1/4 t garlic powder
Boil pasta until done as directed,,,,,meanwhile start sauce by melting butter,,,once melted add flour
cooking about 1 minute while whisking,,,,stir in minced garlic then add milk still whisking add cream cheese and parmesan cheese,,,whisk until thick,,, add salt pepper and garlic powder,,,and then the parsley while stirring (if sauce looks too thick you can add a little more milk),,,add cooked pasta to a serving
 dish and pour sauce over it and toss,,,you can garnish  with more parmesan cheese
